12 DODGE, GUY H. (EDITOR & INTRODUCTION) Jean - Jacques Rousseau: Authoritarian Libertarian?
D. C. Heath and Company, Boston: 1971. First Edition (Unstated). s Softcover. Good condition. 
The key problem of this volume is centered around the famous "libertarian-authoritarian" or "force-freedom" paradox in the political theory of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, which has been the subject of intense controversy for more than two hundred year, thereby giving someindication of the influenc e and timeliness of his thought. On the one hand, passages of his works are cited where he opposes despotism, oppression, force, and injustice in favor of liberty, equality, and law, while on the other hand, very different selections are referred to which have authoritarian, if not even totalitarian, implications. Various explanations of this paradox make up the body of this Rousseau reader, which is based not only on the evolution of Rousseau's solution to the great problem of politics," but also on its appraisal by representartive critics in the nineteen and twentieth centuries.

Hillman Books, New York: 1961. Ninth Printing. s Softcover. Very good condition. 
According to the author, "This book is not written with the idea of adding to or improving on the Conservative philosophy. Or of 'bringing it up to date.' The ancient and tested truths that guided our Republic through its early days will do equally well for us. The challenge to Conservatives today is quite simply to demonstrate the bearing of a proven phiosophy on the problems of our time." "Forthright . . . a pleasure to read." - National Review

18 HAMMILL, GRAHAM (EDITOR); LUPTON, JULIA REINHARD (EDITOR); BALIBAR, ETIENNE (POSTSCRIPT). Political Theology And Early Modernity.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2012. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Political theology is a distinctly modern problem, one that takes shape in some of the most important theoretical writings of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. But its origins stem from the early modern period, in medieval iconographies of sacred kinship and the critique of traditional sovereignty mounted by Hobbes and Spinoza. In this book, Graham Hammill and Julia Reinhard Lupton assemble established and emerging scholars in early modern studies to examine the role played by sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literature and thought in modern conceptions of political theology. Political Theology and Early Modernity explores texts by Shakespeare, Machiavelli, Milton, and others that have served as points of departure for such thinkers as Schmitt, Strauss, Benjamin, and Arendt. Written from a spectrum of positions ranging from renewed defenses of secularism to attempts to reconceive the religious character of collective life and literary experience, these essays probe moments of productive conflict, disavowal, and entanglement in politics and religion as they pass between early modern and modern scenes of thought. This stimulating collection is the first to answer not only how Renaissance and baroque literature help explain the persistence of political theology in modernity and postmodernity, but also how the reemergence of political theology as an intellectual and political problem deepens our understanding of the early modern period.

20 HONT, ISTVAN; KAPOSSY, BÉLA & SONENSCHER, MICHAEL (EDITORS). Politics In Commercial Society: Jean-jacques Rousseau And Adam Smith.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Scholars normally emphasize the contrast between the two great eighteenth-century thinkers Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Adam Smith. Rousseau is seen as a critic of modernity, Smith as an apologist. Istvan Hont, however, finds significant commonalities in their work, arguing that both were theorists of commercial society and from surprisingly similar perspectives. In making his case, Hont begins with the concept of commercial society and explains why that concept has much in common with what the German philosopher Immanuel Kant called unsocial sociability. This is why many earlier scholars used to refer to an Adam Smith Problem and, in a somewhat different way, to a Jean-Jacques Rousseau Problem. The two problems—and the questions about the relationship between individualism and altruism that they raised—were, in fact, more similar than has usually been thought because both arose from the more fundamental problems generated by thinking about morality and politics in a commercial society. Commerce entails reciprocity, but a commercial society also entails involuntary social interdependence, relentless economic competition, and intermittent interstate rivalry. This was the world to which Rousseau and Smith belonged, and Politics in Commercial Society is an account of how they thought about it. Building his argument on the similarity between Smith's and Rousseau's theoretical concerns, Hont shows the relevance of commercial society to modern politics—the politics of the nation-state, global commerce, international competition, social inequality, and democratic accountability. Istvan Hont was a Reader in the History of Political Thought at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of King's College. Bla Kapossy is Professor in Modern History at the University of Lausanne. Michael Sonenscher is a Fellow of King's College, University of Cambridge. "David Hume, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Adam Smith probed deeply into the moral and political dimensions of what has come to be known as capitalism. Istvan Hont's beautifully executed lectures reaffirm why it is worthwhile to know and interpret Enlightenment thought and, in particular, grapple with the timeless question of the trade-off between economic growth and political stability."—Margaret Schabas, University of British Columbia
